Camp Shonga - Shishangeni Private Lodge

Camp Shonga is a satellite camp managed by Shishangeni Lodge and is situated in the 15,000 ha private concession in the south-eastern section of the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Shonga literally means “pretty” or “beautiful” and this camp is truly that.

A small five tented ethnic bush retreat built in the foothills of the Lebombo mountains, Camp Shonga is the ideal getaway for those seeking that little bit more than a regular safari. Selected environmental awareness programmes and guest participation in conservation issues is the ethos of Camp Shonga and the enthusiastic guides are more than willing to share their vast knowledge of varying eco-systems with their guests.

Game drives and guided walks form a regular part of the daily activities, thus ensuring an all round safari experience. Guests are met at the main camp at Shishangeni on arrival and transferred to Shonga by open vehicle.

The central common area consists of a charming lounge and open deck where guests can relax while sipping a cool drink as the wild game wanders past. A splash pool is an added comfort to enjoy in the heat of the summer, after a memorable guided walk into the pristine wilderness around the camp. Dining is also a special time at Shonga and most meals are taken outdoors under the clear African skies, while sitting around a blazing fire, listening to the enchanting tales and experiences of the local community.
